We first saw this plate of 'green' at Discover Dogs last year and thought ‘what a great idea!’ The Green Interactive Feeder from Company Of Animals is a clever way to mentally stimulate your dog therefore, helping to reduce any unruly behaviour born out of boredom such as excessive barking or typical doggy destruction – hands up who’s lost a pair of shoes to their pooch?
Designed to look like a patch of grass, simply scatter your dog’s food allowance across the green and watch him work for his biscuits, as he has to push the food out between the blades of grass with their snout. As well as providing essential mental stimulation, the green also prolongs eating time to help reduce the risk of vomiting, gagging, gas, belching and potentially fatal 'bloat' disease so it's great for dogs who wolf down their dinner at record speed.
Unfortunately this isn't a product we can purchase for Basil, as his squishy face would prevent him from being able to get to the goods, which is a shame given his 'gas' issues. However, we didn’t walk away from their stand empty handed. We purchased a Nina Ottosson Interactive Dog Brick game, which we will be unleashing on Basil this weekend.
A one size fits all design, the Green Interactive Feeder is made of hard plastic (without phthalates), is suitable for indoor and outdoor use and is dishwasher safe. Get yours for £25 from Companyofanimals.co.uk
